Abstract:

Our long-term goal is to perfect a process-based model for the prediction of scour and burial of mines deployed in the shallow waters of the global coastal zone and to use this model to develop general principles of mine burial that can be used by the fleet. We are presently pursuing this goal by expanding the physics and validation of the model to treat mine burial as a global problem using a hierarchy of interactive inputs for both mine types and coastal type.
